Jesus, his mother, and his disciples were invited to a wedding feast in a town called Cana. While they were attending the festivities, it was discovered that the supply of wine had run out. Noticing this plight, Jesus' mother suggested to him that he should help those present at the feast. Jesus replied that his time had not yet come, yet his mother instructed the servants to do as Jesus would bid them. After they had obeyed his command to fill the six waterpots with water, Jesus then told them to give some to the governor of the feast. As they poured the liquid into a cup, they noticed that it was no longer water. It had been miraculously converted to wine. The governor, as yet unaware of the miracle Jesus had performed, was astounded that the wine tasted even better than the first wine served at the feast.
This first miracle manifested the power and the glory of God through Christ and caused Jesus' disciples to believe in him.
From this story we can learn several things. If we obey, God can do great things for us. Also, when God does a work, it is always a perfect work, better than anything humanity could ever perform.
